Hi everyone and welcome to the Heartland Digital Living Room where the hot dogs, chicken wings, and tonight bratwurst are always fresh, the beverages are always cold, and the chatter is always fast and furious. Tonight, the Yankees try to make amends for the 15-6 pasting they absorbed at home this afternoon at the hands of the Mets, and rebound by taking the first scheduled game of the series. Sidney Stinking Ponson (4-1, 3.88 ERA for Texas) leads the charge into Queens against Pedro Martinez. Hopefully the pitching can drastically improve in the nightcap over the dreadful outing Giese, Edwar, Ohlendorf, and Hawkins put on earlier. Come on in, grab a digital leather recliner and a coldie, and enjoy the game. As per Pete Abraham, the lineups are below. Also as per Abraham, Matsui has been placed on the DL for his knee, and Kei Igawa (Ugh!) has been recalled. Nothing good about those transactions.
Let’s Go, Yankees!
